2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: From what I heard from my roommate's friend, being part of the Greek life is similar to what most watch in movies. There are lots of parties, pay to earn fake friends, and it is a waste of time.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I do not attend sports events because I'm not a fan of sports.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I do not regret choosing this school. In my first year, I joined several clubs and met a large number of friends from different cultures and backgrounds. I was able to be a part of their community and become a well known member, bringing awareness to the school about the Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) students.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Sac State police is always recognizable on campus. There's also plenty of emergency lights around campus where you can press the button and someone will come. Or you can always give the Sac State police a call and they can come pick you up and drive you to your car if you ever felt unsafe.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sac State offers a lot of workshops for mock job interviews with potential jobs, resume workshops where people can read over yours and assist and help make it better.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I've never lived on campus, however I did help out with Move In Day and did a tour of the dorms about a year and a half ago. From the tour, you can tell that the RA's keep everything together and help to motivate students to get out of their dorm rooms and socialize, as well as plan events during the weeks. For move in day, I met a lot of great students and parents, either returning or just starting. A majority of students moving into the dorms seemed to be excited and worried about potential roommate drama, but overall it seems like a good place to live if you want to be close to campus.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I recently went Greek last semester and though we're a new chapter on campus compared to the rest, all the other well known ones have been very welcoming of us. There's a lot of activities for Greek life to get involved in as well as volunteer with other organizations on campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Being an athletic training major and also working at a gym, I feel like this campus is pretty highly ranked. The on campus gym offers a lot of what a gym off campus would offer, ranging from classes to machines and weights. There's also something for athletic and non-athletic students to partake in and a lot of them will throughout the semesters.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I transferred last year and I've loved every moment of it. It's a much larger campus, but when you're doing your major classes, you learn a lot of people and you see them everywhere on campus, which makes it feel smaller by knowing so many people.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Based on my observations of the athletics, they are very supportive of each other on campus.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Sacramento State is filled with supportive people. That's what I love most about Sac State. During midterms and finals, faculties, parents, and students always come by the AIRC where it's open 24/7 for students to study and give out snacks to the students. Along with the snacks are motivated notes such as "You're almost done with finals. Keep it up" etc. Furthermore, Sacramento State is very diverse, and the people there are very supportive towards multicultural. Sac state have became my home as an undergraduate and now it is still my home as a graduate. I am proud to be at Sac State because of the environment that makes me feel wanted and acknowledged.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I'm not into athletics but I hear the teams rank well. We have an Olympic level track and a premium gym.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sac state is a very welcoming campus. 90% of my experience with the teachers was very positive. I was recruited into an MA program by an extremely passionate and wonderful teacher! I wouldn't be getting my masters if we're not for her.

3 College Senior

Diversity: There have been some instances of intolerance, most of the time campus is chill

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Awesome campus and beautiful surroundings. The overall environment is friendly and there are many awesome teachers.

4 College Student

4 College Student

Overall Experience: There are always options available for students, students must take the initiative to do something whether it's looking for job opportunities or internships.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students appreciate Sac State because it's pleasant, but they often wish it had more school spirit. The ones who are satisfied with it usually haven't been to other four-year universities, so they don't have anything major to compare it to from first-hand experience. Those who wish for more excitement usually mention wilder Bay Area campuses. A majority of people that attend Sac State just want a degree so they can get out. They know not to expect the typical college experience that makes for legendary times and awesome memories. Too many of them commute. If Sac State were more of an on-campus school, there would be more student satisfaction socially. If you decide to study here and want campus community, seek clubs or other social organizations as soon as possible. If you're laid-back and don't mind coming to a school where everyone just comes to get a grade and a job, make yourself at home.

Many students would be blown away if they knew how hard their education could be, but a lot of them are fine with Sac State's current academic level. Most assignments are easy, and it's surprising what students worry about. There's a writing test, the Writing Proficiency Exam, that all students must take before advancing to higher-level classes, and it has a fearsome reputation because many of them make a big deal about it. But in reality, it's nothing more than an in-class essay where you offer your opinion on a certain topic—that's all. Although most Sac State students don't think their education is lacking, when they voice concerns, it's obvious that something's missing. If they were used to consistently working harder, that test would be a breeze.
